needed to build up a great community of people sharing cars. that lets us find great cars, educate the owners, educate the renters, and ensure there is the right balance and variety of cars. if you look on the site in san francisco, you will literally see cars all over the place. it is all over the bay area. you are seeing cars sharing happening in places it never had before. we worked with the city to see if there were any ways we could get out the word. we hope to work with existing programs or be added as an additional transportation solution. in general, we like to involve the city and city leaders in our announcement of coming to market, and it has been working really well. >> i know you have community managers all over the globe. what's going on there? >> airbnb goes to network effects. we are all over in -- we are already in 19 cities all over the world. we just provide the tools on line, and local residents throughout the world decide they want to be part of the movement and part of airbnb and list their homes on the site, and local travelers decide they want to go somewhe
been educated with women. when were very important for me, my grandmother, my mother. they give me and show me threw themselves an example of what women wear. women that were strong, a clever, human. and at the same time, sometimes stronger than men. so that i realized very quickly that women could be more interesting, more clever, because of maybe education or maybe because of the fact that they have not played football, to be quiet, you know, more into things to obtain. to obtain something. they have to be 10 times more clever than the men. they have everything it themselves already at the base. >> that we already know we are 10 times more intelligent. [laughter] >> yes. i mean, like, men did not realize that most of the time. even if the need. the need, you know. so that, you know, truly, i felt the power of the woman. at the time, also like the woman at sleeve and that kind of thing. we admit -- we -- women reacting on taking out the bra and putting it on fire. the fire of the bra. a symbol. showing that we are as much as the men. maybe we first tried to look at men to see that
and not being educated about it. i think that's what creates the difficulty in society. so i'll go up to the kid and say, my name is oscar and i've got these cool prosthetic legs, i'll tell them an interesting story like a shark bit them off or if the mother is looking i'll say it's because i didn't eat my vegetables, get brownie points there. ultimately i say i don't have legs but can live a very normal life. hopefully the next time they see somebody in a wheelchair or with a disability, they're not bewildered but they're educated and it's not as different as i think many of the older generation grew up with, something we didn't talk about. >> you were born without the fbi u la bo-- fibula in both legs. around your first birthday you had double amputees. basically your family ignored it, you started playing sports at a very young age. what is that moment when a man with no legs decides, i know what i'm going to do, i'm going to be a sprinter? the reason i ask you is i interviewed the armless archer who was incredible as well. i'm watching him do his stuff in here was like watching you run. of a
with one purpose in mind -- to educate citizens, community groups and policymakers about the positive impacts of choosing locally owned businesses. it is a network of locally owned independent businesses, community organizations and citizens that's grown to more than 3,000 local business owners. studies have shown that shifting just a small percentage of our shopping dollars to locally owned businesses could keep millions in our communities. this is something to think about as the holiday season approaches. instead of going to a chain, why not branch out and get your coffee at safari cafe on south port or get a hotdog at jean and june's and buy a few holiday gift at a local shop as well? local businesses help thriving communities. i'm glad to have local first chicago fighting for ours. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from michigan seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan is rec

wanted to be with his son but he also wanted to expose him to a european education and to the world of international affairs, and they went to stay with benjamin franklin, and benjamin franklin's lavish chÂteau outside of paris at the time coming and john quincy, john quincy adams went to a french school with benjamin franklin's grandson. and within several months he was speaking french fluently. he was a gifted child. by the time he was 15, he could speak four languages fluently. he'd already studied classical, latin and greek, he could write latin and greek. he was gifted in foreign languages that when a family friend was appointed ambassador minister to russia come first minister to russia and he couldn't speak french at the time french was not only the language of international diplomacy, it was also the language spoken in the russian court, they spoke french to each other. john quincy could and he asked john adams can you take john quincy adams with you to st. petersburg as the secretary at 16 years of age, and john quincy adams goes up with francis to st. petersburg and spend
to education and some news that could soon have a major impact on your kid's school day. starting next fall, districts will expand the school day, adding as much as 300 hours to the calendar. it's all part of a theree-year plan aimed at boosting achievement and making the u.s. more competitive. schools will be part of the pilot program, but educators hope to add additional communities. education secretary arne duncan has been pushing for more time in the classroom for the last several years. additional costs will come from a combination of local funds and shifting existing federal programs. >>> with the u.s. poised to dominate global petroleum production for the next decade in large part because of natural gas and fracking, other countries may be at least a decade behind in gdeveloping their own supplies. >>> my krchlcnbc colleague jeff cutmore live overseas. this is good news at least in the short term, right? >> absolutely, brian. and a very good morning to you. good to see you anchoring the program this morning. the u.s. has such a strong lead in this area. it's hard to see how companies
are doing that with education, by the way, any profit sector in education, is a competitor to what the government does. is there any truth to that, do you think? >> i mean the decision to give a charitable gift is driven by helping the community directly. when it goes through government, i mean we see every day the inefficiency of that, that the charity's mission starts to drift towards what the government wants rather than what the community wants, rather than the mission of the organization. david: private charity is more efficient? stuart: more basic point, when the government does so called charitable work, it is essentially distributing money, it is buying votes. liz: that's right. stuart: when a private charity does good, there's no vote buying. it is an efficient delivery of service. am i crazy? >> added to that is that many of these charities do rely upon local state and federal money for some of their programs. they are already getting a major cut in all of that to begin with. then you add to that this? liz: yeah. it's upside down and backwards the way the white house and

to the defense settlement and the objective the nhs budget and the object to the education budget, even though nhs schools are going up, and what exactly would they do? the problem is as was evident from the shadow chancellor's response, they didn't have anything to say on these matters but if they had a credible deficit plan then we would listen to the questions they ask us about the priorities of those plans. >> john stephenson. >> this cools and colleges of 270 million are extremely welcome. schools and colleges such as those in my constituency plans on the runway ready to take off, just in a little additional financial support. will the chancellor help those colleges and schools? >> i'm very happy to look personally at the case my honorable friend makes for his local education facility. these are of course other government departments but we have provided the money for education, for new free schools and academies. and i'm sure that carlyle should be looked at. >> steve reed. >> chancellor aware because of his continuing inadequate level of funding to school building which today's statemen
to explain. choices in terms of the education system tend to lead us to what appears to be a chronic shortage of certain skills that are skilled trades, scientists, and to nears. it is consistent and persistent. what we are trying to do as the government is improve our labor markets, make certain investments to get people to be aware of opportunities in the skilled trades and complete that trading. we are readjusting our immigration programs so they will be more accurate. traditionally, we have extremely passive immigration. we are trying to change that so we start to identify the needs we have and we find those needs in the world. we are finding -- we used to be skilledtition for and immigration. those are some of the things we are doing. we need other levels of government to one some of those things. the provinces are responsible for the labor market. we are always open to whatever we can do with business and a partnership of business. it will be is persistent challenge. >> the cisco academy desk training. -- does training. canada has said they can hire entry engineering student in canada n
. federal education officials announced today that five states will participate in an experiment to make students spend more time in school. meanwhile, many states are already implementing a new national approach, called the "common core state standards." special correspondent elizabeth brackett of public television station wttw reports on how that's working out in chicago. reporter: chicago elementary school students have walked these stairs for more than 100 years. named for the meat-packing tycoon this chicago public school is now 87% hispanic. like many inner-city schools it is on academic probation. >> you're going to write the main idea of the story on one post-it note. then you're going to rip off another. you're just going to write two character traits. >> reporter: but now this school is on the cutting edge of the biggest change in american education in years. it is one of a small group of chicago schools that is testing the new common course state standards. so far 46 states have adopted the standards which describe what every student needs to know from kindergarten through 12t
warnings. let's get specific about it. your child's school may have to fire teachers and educational opportunities could diminish. 200,000 children could be dropped from the head start program. carl azus is tracking this. when's on the line for schools nationwide? >> don, you have to look at how schools have felt the pain of the recession and not recovered from it. i mean, some of the things you have menlgsed have happened. we have seen teachers down sized. laid off. in some cases bought off. we have seen class sizes swell. activities cut and now what schools are faced with is additional cuts on top of that. talking about an excess of $4 billion. and the way that math works out is for every 300,000 -- excuse me, for every 5,000 students in a district, roughly $300,000 cut on average. that would put funding levels back to where they were before 2003. some people may say, okay. ten years ago, not really a big deal. there are 5.4 million more students today than in 2003. costs have gone up 25% according to the national education association. so they're going to feel it. when you mention
to a halt over hiring an assistant secretary for education. so my thoughts that i have had for some years. now it takes 60 senators to stop debate. the onus is on the majority. in the past they had to haul 92-year-old robert burns out of his hospital bed to come to the floor to provide that 60th vote. you want to continue to debate, you have to have 41 voters on the floor every time there's a motion to stop debate. that seems to me as a more effective way. because you could make it apply to all these over filibusters. host: a tweet says what happened to majority rules? the filibuster was to give everybody a say, not to rule the land. >> and a filibuster was a rarely-used phenomenon. up until the 1950's yoo might get one or two a year. now cloture chure motions, the one who stop debates aren't ones you talk about. host: democrats line, james, go ahead. caller: yes, good morning, c-span. thank you for taking my call. i understand the filibuster rules. i'm 63 years old, and i'm a disabled veteran of 10 years, vietnam. but nobody wants to get down to the plain, cut through the chase on the fi
of their life. education, health and fitness, entrepreneurship and overcoming obstacles and we do it in a tangible way that really wasn't there before, and we're able to do it because of cnn. >> absolutely incredible. you've been so busy. we've put you to work. she is our special backstage pass reporter, so she's getting the scoop on all the action backstage. you've even been interviewing some of the honorees for this year, 2012. what's that experience been like for you? >> i'm glad i can take a step back this time and watch them go through what i went through last year and know that their life and their cause is about to change in so many ways. >> and you're tickled by this. >> i love it. i'm having way too much fun. and i'm just honored to be there and to reunite heros from the past. i'm just really pumped. >> we can't wait and we're so proud of you. randi, you see some of the things set up behind us. we're going to have a little bit of rain tomorrow, but that won't spoil any of the festivities at all. our cnn heroes banners are up. things are taking shape here. we can't wait. b
? >> what i mean is that my education, i have been looking at old movies that i love. we speak about the reputation of the parisian, which was supposed to dress very well. i think that, you know, in france, the eccentricity -- for me, eccentricity is very chic and it is what i love. it is so much about the good taste, which paralyzed. it is still a city where everybody meets profession, sure, but it is sad that you did not seek only may be in the young people, but you do not see when people are in the rain, let's say, in society, like having the joy to address. like you have to be like the color of the street of paris. you ought not to be remarkable. it is very demanding of the people. so i said to the people, no, we have to be like everyone else. in london, it was completely different, and it still is. more distance that makes them, for me, more fascinating than the french. >> we want to take questions from the audience, but i did just want to ask you a quick question about your work in movies because that has been so extraordinarily exceptional. i think probably a lot of people --

for education and train science and research. >> any republican who buys this is a fool. republicans have stood for one thing statistically that held them. they are the low tax party. the other guys want to tax to match their reckless spending. if they give it up now in return for nothing, obama wins and high wins big. i understand why the democrats are doing this. they imagine that republicans have no bargaining power today . i say that it is true if republicans resist they will take the blame and that will help democrats in the congress. but obama's never running again. he doesn't care who gets the blame. he is the president and a blame duck. he wants a successful second term. if it starts by going over the cliff it starts with second recession and wrecked second term. >> steve: that's why the president said i would be willing to do anything to get a deal. >> gretchen: it is not a deal. this is what the american public needs to know. this is raising taxos successful people and reducing taxes on the middle class. that is not a deal folks. they will waste your taxpayer dollars and overspend and
of across the board tax increases for everyone, coupled with cuts in spending like defense, education, health care, and housing assistance. let's go live to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin with the very latest. jessica? >> reporter: president obama has now personally turned down speaker boehner's opening offer to avert the fiscal cliff. he did it in a tv interview. what does president obama think of speaker boehner's proposal to avert the fiscal cliff? >> unfortunately, the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. he talks about $800 billion worth of revenues but says he's going to do that by lowering rates. when you look at the math, it doesn't work. >> reporter: he won't agree to eliminate a tax deduction for contributions to charity. >> every hospital and university and nonfor profit agency across the country would find themselves on the verge of collapse. so that's not a realistic option. >> reporter: but the president didn't say all this to speaker boehner. he said it in an interview on bloomberg tv. the last time the two men spoke was almost a wee
regularly played educational games with the boys in her nursery. and was actively involved in drop-offs and pickups at a day school in london. >> that was not okay with diana. >> reporter: in later years, william and harry would call diana, quite simply, the best mother in the world. those are some big maternal shoes to fill. but royal watchers predict kate is up to the challenge. >> i think william and kate's parenting styles may be similar to what diana did. and i think william and kate are going to follow that model, to do everything they can to ensure as normal a childhood as possible. but at the same time, educating their child for the future roles. >> i know it's a little early. but names are already being floated out there. and they may not surprise you. for a girl, we're hearing elizabeth. and for boys, charles or edward. and, yes. british bookies are in on the act. 6-1 odds that the royal baby is a redhead. josh? >> i'll take those odds. we'll be right back with you. >>> and ahead here, gold medalist gabrielle douglas here live. why she almost quit gymnastics just months b
poverty. highlighting things like education are a path laid to burning the right to be heard. because a lot of communities are saying we just don't believe that you care about us. i think that having folks who communicate well is a ticket to making that hard battle happen. greg: i read his books and offense. your latest one, you revert to the republican party as hard wing conservatives. that they are being pushed into political relevance. >> yes, for example, the fight over the fiscal cliff is taking place between speaker boehner and the white house. they put republicans in the senate in a rare type of position where they are in the game, but they are not the leaders of the game. see what is going on in the senate in general. we're republicans should have the majority of the senate, if not highly ontological candidates were nominated by the party base. thinking of someone like richard murdoch in indiana. there's no reason the democrats should not hold that seat. they are putting republicans in the senate at a disadvantage. >> the other thing is that ted cruz is a tea party candidate,
to mind, brown versus the board of education, that sat on people's desks for a long time and a bunch of different cases that all sort of folded in to it. loving versus virginia. that was interracial marriage. that was another case that sat around a long time because it seemed as though the supreme court, differently configured supreme court, actually wanted to wait and let the country lead. and when you look right now, even some people who have been fighting for same-sex marriage for years say the math and the map don't make the supreme court taking this up right now a certainty. >> your law professors are so thrilled with you right now, joe johns, that you could just spout that off and i'm impressed. joe johns, thank you very much for that. see you probably friday. for the record, folks, nine states plus d.c. have legalized same-sex marriage to date. exit polls of last month's elections show that a slight majority of voters think that gay marriage should be legal in their states. >>> moving on now. rain, wind and snow are hammering the west coast. three separate storms in just one w
of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> the early dividends announced by some companies to avoid higher tax rates are paying off for the ceos and their investors. take larry ellison. he's the ceo of oracle. they are paying dividends three quarters ahead. that means a payday for mr. ellison of $198 million. his shareholders will also do very well and i wish them all happy holidays to beat the tax man. now, president obama wants higher revenues and higher tax rates but you know it often doesn't work out that way. in fact from kennedy to reagan to clinton to w. bush lower tax rates frequently increased tax revenues, particularly at the upper end of the income stream. so here now to discuss this we have cnbc contributor keith boykin a former clinton white house aide and forbes media chairman steve forbes author of freedom manifesto, why free markets are moral and big government is not. love that. hey steve and keith. keith boykin i'll give yo
through their budget process, is that money that i'm earmarking for education or transportation or whatever is happening in the state actually going to be there when the time comes for me to spend it or are we going to have to call the state legislatures back in session and make these cuts across the board? it's always a pretty traumatic when a legislature has to come back and revise a budget and sort of account for money that is not there when you expected it to be there. that's why getting these governors on board is really important. i actually sat down with a lot of them at the republican governors association meeting a few weeks ago out west. and a lot of them were saying we've planned for this. we've made preparations in advance. the real thing that they are concerned about is what happens to the military spending, what happens wh happens when their bases in the home state cuts back. a lot of them have planned in advance for the federal money not to be there. >> we heard governor herbert of utah saying that they understand the shared sacrifice, wanting to do more with less
. that is deviating away from what the real problems in education are. if you know that finland has the number one school system in the world and part of that process is making the standards so rigorous and they only the best of the best and same time they pay significantly more for teachers and once they earned that title. they earned complete autonomy over the class roommate. part of the problem we have so much regulation and mandates and we are dictated to how to teach in our classrooms. what is the point in making standards when we don't have the option to use professional judgment as it am is. >> steve: thank you very much for joining us on the wednesday morning from beautiful orlando, florida. thank you. >> thank you for having me. >> gretchen: we have a hypochrissy alert. remember michael moor's latest ovie bashing tax rate breaks. >> steve: and a big secret and writing a letter to his younger self as a warning for others not to do the same thing. coach k will reveal that letter with brian next on "fox and friends" ♪ ♪ than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, bu

the american people to go along with and probably needs to be more of an education process to say look at the numbers, here are the numbers. we haven't heard that. >> i think that's right. remember, we do elect representatives of the people. they should understand it. when you are running at a trillion dollar plus deficit every year and have $16 trillion worth of debt, it is 100% of gdp, that's a signal we have to do something. so i wouldn't expect all the american people that haven't had much exposure to this stuff to be fully cognizant. i hope the representatives are. >> but do you have people that say there is not a problem here. some -- like paul krugman who is a nobel prize-winning economist knows more than people on the street were doing this, he says you shouldn't be doing this at this point. >> i think that paul krugman is -- remarkable record of being wrong a lot of times. and -- i know that he has been -- nobel laureate and i won't be. but i think there's -- any serious person recognizes there is a problem here and we have to do something about it. >> how come we are still no
that storm. it actually created jobs. and when it comes to our schools, we're not investing in education so that tomorrow we could be innovative to create new innovative platforms that could weather the next one if there is to be one. so we could learn from what's happening now to protect us in the future and that is education and investing in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and schools. >> there's speculation that you'll be doing a tv show to find the next steve jobs or the next bill gates for an example. you can really find the bill gates through a television program? >> you can find the next bill gates through a competition. whether the competition happens online, in a fair, on tv is not important. but the competition is important. the challenge and the ob kestac and tools is important. >> you talk a lot about fashion and technology and incorporating the two together and there seems like there's a lot of focus on that. >> like that scarf you have, it's nice. but other than keeping your neck warm it doesn't do anything else for you. and in this day and age, it can do a lot m
